What is Krav Maga?
KRAV MAGA (PRONOUNCED "KRAHV MAGAH")
HEBREW FOR “CONTACT COMBAT”, IS THE OFFICIAL SELF-DEFENSE AND HAND-TO-HAND COMBAT SYSTEM OF the Israeli Defense Forces and U.S. law enforcement agencies. KRAV MAGA IS A MODERN AND PRACTICAL STYLE OF SELF-DEFENSE THAT IS THE ONLY STYLE WORLDWIDE KNOWN AS AN ART OF SELF-DEFENSE AND NOT AS A MARTIAL ART.
The objective of Krav Maga training is to teach individuals how to instantly change from a passive state of awareness to a highly alert and aggressive one, and to be able to perform under stress. The system, a hybrid of karate, wrestling, judo, jujitsu, boxing, muay thai, and street survival tactics, integrates different instinct-based self-defense maneuvers with a strong curriculum that trains situational awareness and a fighting spirit, as well as verbal de-escalation of conflict.
Krav Maga's anti-terrorist roots make it aggressive by design, with only one objective: to eliminate the threat in the fastest way possible. It is considered a highly-refined street fighting system, designed to be utilized against street attacks, muggings, and sexual assaults.
Krav Maga was developed for use in the street. When an individual is attacked in the street, there is no way to know how many opponents or weapons they might encounter; therefore, Krav Maga training is based on a system without rules. Krav Maga has received international recognition for its unique approach in bringing self-defense to civilian, military, and law enforcement alike.
